At Halloween it's said that old toys and mutant monstrosities make their way back into the land of the living for another scare and today we're receiving a visit from the one and only Muck Master! Yup, the Master of Muck himself is here to cause some Halloween havoc and smash some pumpkins with us. Don't you feel special? You should! I love the Trash Bag Bunch and it's a thrill to dig one of these little guys out every year show off during 31 Days of Toy Terror. Muck Master is one of the villainous Trashors and he looks like a somewhat standard alien augmented some very makeshift weaponry slapped together from a scrap yard. These little guys are so unusual and fun and they're still one of my favorite lines of minifigures ever made. Back in the day they came in little trash bags. You through the trash bag in some water and the effervescent tablet inside caused everything to bubble up, revealing your new warrior. This is another one original to my childhood collection. Let's take a look at the Muck Master after the break...
Height: 2 1/4ths inches
Year of Release: 1991
* Muck Master's head is really cool. Again, he kind of reminds me of a standard little green man except that he has three rows of pink eyes with another right on the top of his forehead. Weird!
* Mallets are just very cool, especially when they take the place of your hand. Actually, they might be a bit limited, as it would make every problem you come across seem like a nail. Well, you'd probably have to treat every problem like a nail. Still.... mallet hand. Very nifty.
* The fact that Muck Master is just toting around a car door as a shield is pretty sweet. It's either a smaller car door or Muck Master is a pretty large guy. Still, I'm not knocking it. It's very creative. Remember Bull from Crash Dummies? He toted around a car door to use as a shield as well.
This is the first figure of Muck Master I've reviewed on the site. For more Trash Bag Bunch reviews check out the following:
